I was pleasantly surprised by the beauty of this historic site. The main building has an amazing inside curved staircase that looks like it's going up to heaven! The venue is rented out for private weddings and events. I can imagine how cool it would be to attend an event there! We also enjoyed touring the other smaller buildings, where... More

Historical temple, children of peace (Quakers) There are other historical buildings on site. Candle light tour in the fall of the year and illumination in September is quite the experience

This building played a role in the Toronto rebellion despite being founded by the "Children of Peace" proving the concept wasn't invented in the 60's. The building isn't heated so it's really a warm season venue. Lots of info on the Web site and they run several events in the Summer.

Really neat building. Surrounding land also contains various homesteads and relevant structures. A lot of history about the temple and its people is available. Worthwhile to pack a picnic and spend an afternoon checking it out.

What a piece of architecture. If y like history this is pretty unique. Not a run of the mill museum. Built in 1820 based on the bible. 4 tremendous arches to symbolize 4 virtues. 12 columns symbolizes 12 disciples. 7 yrs to build symbolizes a lot. 3 stories-Holy trinity etc. it's a WOW!! Particularly lit up at night and listening... More

I live very close to Sharon temple. They always have different events and guests, singers and activities going on. I would recommend checking their website or if like me drive by and check the sign for what's coming up. There is a small temperance hall on the facility which I have attended numerous times. It's great to rent for smaller... More

I was looking for a day trip from Toronto so I posted on Facebook asking friends to make a suggestion. One friend said that the Sharon Temple was a must-see. I'd never heard of the Sharon Temple, but it sounded enjoyable. It turned out to be a wonderful afternoon. We were lucky enough to get a tour guide all to... More

I grew in the area and have been to Sharon Temple many times. It is one of my favourite places to visit. The story of the Children of Peace, break-off group from the Quakers, and the design of their community and the temple itself is very unusual and quite fascinating. The temple design is all representative of their philosophy and... More

Last month while staying in Newmarket for a house sit, we took a couple of hours to look at Sharon Temple. I have known about it for many years, just never took the time. Unfortunately they were planning a big event for the weekend so the other buildings were locked, being prepared for the Weaving Words event. However, the main... More
